More Valuable

More Usable

Easy-to-use VoiceXML audio prompt playback, audio recording, touch-tone interaction, voice recognition, and text to speech capabilities deliver usability your customers will love... and our open software architecture makes it easy for you to address future requirements with technology upgrades.

More Versatile

Flexible CCXML call control delivers inbound call handling, outbound call delivery, intelligent call routing, comprehensive call conferencing, and call center integration features that leave other solutions miles behind. Plus, the Voxeo Prophecy IVR Platform supports the ability to digitally record all or a portion of all calls for third party verification (TPV) of FTC telesales requirements. Simply put, no one gives you more control over your calls than Voxeo.

More Reliable

Redundant software architecture and the maturity of having answered and placed hundreds of millions of calls removes all single points of failure and ensures your application will answer the call every time.

More Scalable

Distributed architecture - originally designed for large scale IVR outsourcing - delivers proven scalability from tens to thousands of ports.

More Standards

The present and future direction of the IVR industry is defined by a suite of IVR/Voice standards from the W3C, the same organization that created the highly successful standards that power the web. The Voxeo Prophecy IVR Platform is the first and only platform to support the entire suite of W3C Voice/IVR standards: VoiceXML for IVR control, CCXML for call control, SRGS for speech recognition control, and SSML for text to speech control. Prophecy supports over 15 other IT standards including XML/XPath and SOAP for back-office integration, SYSLOG for logging, ENUM/DNS for call routing, and SIP for both PSTN/PBX and VoIP telephony integration.

The Net Result 

The flexibility to handle applications of all sizes and scopes.
